Pathfinder Core Pro
Thousands of broadcasters depend on PathfinderPC or PathfinderPRO Windows software to manage, monitor, and control real-time broadcast routing and signaling. A couple years ago, Pathfinder Core PRO put this network control power into a convenient, rack-mount appliance.
Now we're introducing the third-generation of Axia Pathfinder, the Pathfinder Core PRO Appliance and Pathfinder Core PRO VM. Never before has routing control been this simple...or this sophisticated.
Pathfinder Core PRO—either Appliance or VM—is a toolbox with powerful features that combine to create efficient workflows and facility management. For one, it centralizes your Axia device monitoring and control, letting you make route changes from one central place—the Pathfinder Core PRO web interface. Pathfinder Core PRO simplifies routing in complex facilities, even those with thousands of audio sources and destinations, by giving the user easier, more intuitive control over audio workflows. This third-generation of Pathfinder routing control lets you customize and command your entire Axia network like never before with streamlined functionality including Logic Flows—a flow-chart-style events system that makes events easier to create, adjust, and monitor in real time. An efficient, intuitive web interface means easy configuration and monitoring from any device. And, this Linux-based appliance or VM makes full use of the processor while freeing you from a Windows-based server.
The new Pathfinder Core PRO appliance is built on an all-new hardware platform—a powerful and reliable 1RU server. Proven in years of on-air service, the new Pathfinder Core PRO appliance brings enterprise server-class redundancy and multi-processor, multi-threading architecture to real-time broadcast operations. Faster response, deeper event logging, and ultra-reliable monitoring and control are now available in the new Pathfinder Core PRO Appliance. Despite significant increases in processing performance, there’s no price increase for the new Pathfinder Core PRO Appliance.
Pathfinder Core PRO VM is the virtualized monitoring and control solution for Axia Livewire+™ AES67 facilities. Now, Pathfinder Core PRO VM allows broadcasters to deploy Pathfinder monitoring and control on familiar, approved hardware. Moreover, thanks to Pathfinder’s network-optimized monitoring and control protocols, Pathfinder Core PRO VM can be deployed locally or at an off-site data center. Indeed, just one instance of this VM-installable solution can monitor and control dozens of Axia broadcast facilities—over a small region or around the globe. Install Pathfinder Core PRO VM in various hypervisor environments including VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, and Proxmox. Installation is also possible on standalone PC or Server hardware.
